Among the highlights, Palmito businessman Elson Otto assumed the presidency, bringing with him a vast experience as former president of the Palmitos Business Association and 1st secretary of Facisc in the previous administration.
Graduated in Accounting, he began his professional activities in 1980 at the age of 14 in Palmitos/SC and at the age of 20 he took over the audit area of branches of Casas Pernambucanas in São Paulo, where he acquired extensive experience in the area of Management and Compliance, traveling throughout the country . In 1992, he returned to the Far West region of Santa Catarina, where, since then, he has been a retailer in the clothing and bed/table/bath area, being the owner of five businesses Lojas Bom Sono, Loja Paulista and Loja H-1.
At Facisc, Elson Otto went through different managements and positions, reinforcing his associative characteristic, promoting dialogue and with outstanding conciliation skills. As Far West regional vice-president, she worked on promoting and significantly expanding the number of business solutions in the entities that make up the region, reinforcing the purpose of improving the competitiveness of companies that join a business entity.
In an interview with Rede Catarinense de Notícias, Elson Otto highlighted his performance close to the reality and demands of Santa Catarina, emphasizing that his management will focus efforts on improving infrastructure, highlighting the Voz Única project.
“I’m one for dialogue, transparency and I value results. My dream is to be present in 295 municipalities, and I believe we can achieve that, because together we can grow much more”, highlights the businessman, who is already acting in the responsibilities of the presidency.
The festive inauguration ceremony is scheduled for February 29, 2024, during the FACISC Meeting, which will be held at Arena Opus, in Greater Florianópolis.
